The pioneering “Shanghai Conference Ambassadors” program in China was kick-started in 2006 to promote the development of the MICE sector. It draws upon the international successful experiences in the field and takes into full consideration Shanghai’s local features and advantages. Up to now, 110 such Ambassadors have been named.

Thanks to the concerted efforts of related parties, the "Shanghai Conference Ambassadors" program has made outstanding contributions to the development of the city's MICE sector. The fact that more and more international association meetings and academic conferences have been held in Shanghai shows that the program has been very successful despite the increasingly fierce competition in the international tourism industry.
